It’s been over a year since the release of my first knitting pattern. And in that time so many wonderful knitters have picked up this woven baby blanket pattern and made it their very own. I’m so unbelievably happy with the feedback that I’ve had from knitters, and was genuinely amazed (and still am) that it’s been as popular as it has been! I just had to share a few of the finished Hessian Baby Blankets right here! You can see all of these in more detail over on the Hessian Baby Blanket Ravelry project page.
It’s been a few weeks since I last posted. And there’s an explanation for why. I’ve been busy doing nothing – that is to say knitting away the hours and head down (or earbuds) deep in a book! It’s been incredibly refreshing to take a bit of a break, and get back to the things that truly relax me. I set myself a bit of a challenge to broaden my literary horizons and I’m making really good progress with the help of my trusty Kindle and Audible subscription. So here’s a bit of an update on where I am entering the four month of my POPSUGAR Reading Challenge 2017.
Personal highlights so far have been The Perks of Being a Wallflower – an amazing account of friendship and struggles navigating teenage years, and Ready Player One – I devoured this book, and enjoyed listening to it in audiobook format – I cannot, cannot wait for the film now. I may even read it again before its release.
I’ve shuffled a few things around, and introduced a couple of new titles into my list. This is a shifting, moving and ever-changing list, but I’m loving introducing new genres and authors.
